    The Caucasian Chalk Circle (Modern Plays)

    by Bertolt Brecht

    Book Description

    The city burns in the heat of civil war and a servant girl sacrifices everything to protect an abandoned child. But when peace is finally restored, the boy's mother comes to claim him. Calling upon the ancient tradition of the Chalk Circle, a comical judge sets about resolving the dispute. But in a culture of corruption and deception, who wins? Written by the grand master of storytelling and peopled with vivid and amusing characters, this is one of the greatest plays of the last century. This Caucasian Chalk Circle is translated by award-winning writer Alistair Beaton, who also wrote the bitingly witty stage play Feelgood and the celebrated TV dramas The Trial of Tony Blair and A Very Social Secretary. 2009 UK tour by Shared Experience: West Yorkshire Playhouse, (26 Sep-17 Oct), Richmond Theatre (20-24 Oct), Nottingham Playhouse (4-21 Nov) and the Unicorn Theatre, London (25-29 Nov).
